Match Report

         On arrival the XL team, umpire and supporters were treated to pre-match sausages and bacon rolls. The hospitality of Latymer Upper knows no bounds, a joy to play to play there on a good pitch, excellent boys and staff. A special thanks to Latymer Upper’s Coach George Tidy who has done a wonderful job with the current cricketers at the school, fostering good manners, and the sportsmanlike way his team performed and acted throughout the entire time XL were at the ground. Due to the school holding their Leavers Ball after the match it was agreed to play a 40 over match. XL batted first with Jon Thornton’s innings of 75* being the highlight, Andy Stokes had a jug avoidance 48* and a 3 others contributing odd 20’s. Latymer’s bowling was not as strong as it has been in previous years but with very good fielding. XL finished the 40 overs on 207-4. Latymer’s innings was dominated by L.Jouhar who’s 104* cemented Latymer’s victory by 5 wickets. XL’s bowlers toiled away and as usual our age showed in the field. Lunch, tea and after match refreshment were as usual excellent.  We and the school wished each other the best for the rest of the season saying we looked forward to next year’s fixture, the boy’s off to their Ball which left the Xl contingent to finish off the food and drinks left for us. All in all a terrific day’s cricket at a very good venue along with the highest hospitality possible.  Those who played for XL all look forward to next year’s fixture.
